The third single of 2014 - enjoy (and share)!

lyrics

There's a place where you found me again
Between the ten-cent sentiments and a second-hand heart for rent
Listening 'tween the bars of static, notes and noise
For one solitary voice.

(Chorus)
So sing it low, sing it low
By the lamplight soft and slow
Sing it low
We've got nowhere else to go.

I got my share of used-up sayings carved in stone
But I smile 'cos I know you've got a few stones of your own
They're just some old cliches, you say, but I don't mind a bit -
Let's dust 'em off and make a night of it.

(Chorus)

Wake me up and kiss me, honey
Just before the morning light
Let me sleep, don't make me face the day
'Cos then I'd have to leave your side.

It doesn't matter if the critics like the song
It doesn't matter if nobody sings along
Forgive me if I don't know how this one begins
'Cos I'm somewhere I've never been.

(Chorus)
